Hi and welcome! I’m Steina, an adventure-seeking Icelander, mum of two teenage daughters, Emilia (16) and Embla (13), and wife to Björn. We recently moved our entire life to London, hoping to settle down and have a few new adventures. As a family we love to travel, cook (and eat!) good food and music (listening and playing. I sing, Emilia plays drums and Embla the violin. If Björn could play the guitar we could form our own band, but he doesn’t!). We do our best to live a long and happy life, to follow our hearts, treat people around us with love and respect and so far it has brought us good things. ​

I am a preschool teacher by profession (but currently on a long summer holiday) and the topic of children and how to raise them is very important to me. I also love singing and writing and I’m hoping my future will bring me some opportunities to sing and write more. Oh, and one more thing! A few years ago I discovered minimalism. What a life changing moment that was. So this website will mainly feature some recipes (oh, did I mention that all my recipes are vegan?), articles on minimalism, traveling, parenting, budgeting and life itself. ​
